Here's the post where administrator said "BWC is back". No explanation for the forum being down for the last six weeks. No apology. Nothing done to stop the spam. And even a threat that your user account will be deleted if you complain about receiving unwanted emails. You know what that says to me? "We don't really want to be bothered to have to deal with you and we'd rather cut you loose." What nerve.

And someone actually posted to express excitement! Probably a spammer.

BWC was down for over a month. Even before that the admin showed no sign of activity whatsoever - even when we had problems that required admin assistance.

Well, I know that bit...but before the problem happened did they still have the 4x4 workouts going? I changed my email address, so I wasn't getting updates as it is.

Sure they did "before" but how much "before" are we talking about? A year ago? Two? Anyway, I can't say for sure because I only came back just under a year ago myself, but when I did, admin was A.W.O.L.

Parth- You can go back and check your user profile and click on the appropriate button to receive those workouts.

As long as BWC is there, it will be like a library to me. This is my home -I don't stay at the library....

Not anymore. :hifive: But I guess it just goes to show you the admins true colours. I suppose it should only be a matter of time before the administrator bans me for setting up this alternative to BWC, not to mention for my criticism of how he/they/it has handled the forum over the last year.

Here is a copy of the post, obviously directed at the admin, that pissed them off so much, by the way. I saved it because it was so accurate and because when I saw it posted I got the distinct feeling that it would get the member who posted it banned - and it did - until I lifted his ban too, that is. :mrgreen:

When is the last time you actually browsed this forum? Maybe you should actually make yourself aware of what's going on. Unless you get the spam under control nobody is going to want engage in this forum ever again. Nobody likes having to dig through dozens, even hundreds of spam message just to find three or four threads of interest.

And for the past two months it has been IMPOSSIBLE to post on the board. I know that at least two of your moderators contacted you. As I understand it you never replied to any of their emails or PMs asking what's up. The very least you could do is answer with "We are aware of the problem, and will be able to get around to dealing with it by such and such a time." You did not even do that. You just ignored them.

You left a seriously bad taste in the mouth of your core membership. Nobody likes having to rely on someone who has proved time and again to be unreliable. You have dishonored and betrayed this community. Well from some of the threads on this board it's clear they saw it coming and they have started anew without you. Good for them.

(in my opinion) A bigger person would have replied with "Yeah, you're right, I'm/we're sorry. Please let me/us explain...", instead of "off with your heads!"

I've noticed there's even an additional problem that the member did not post about; new members cannot even register to BWC. The "newest member" username has been the same for close to two months (a previously reported spammer, no less): Eleanoreuek.

Am I ever glad we got off that burning barge.

I just find it strange that you would start a great forum, and then just go away. I think they got obsessed with selling their USA stuff.

Ah well, at least the loose ends are tied up eh?

I wonder who the admin of BWC was, I always thought it was paul zaichik and he kinda moved on once he discovered that the USA thing wasn't gonna sell in the millions.
Maybe dom350 was right about him; always said he was a greedy fella who didn't care about the site except to make some quick cash and publicize his vids... and he wasn't the best businessman either!

I thought I would share the update (a little late, but w/e): Cheesedog and I have been demoted (without notification) from Super Moderators on BWC. Not that there is anything happening there to moderate anyway. There seem to have been less than a dozen or so posts on the forum since it "re-opened" a couple weeks ago.

Yep I got demoted too. And the admin has actually been posting a bit.

Also: http://www.bwculture.net/default.asp

Eh, not worth worrying about, as I said. He would've made more money, if that's his main game, if he'd bothered to keep his members happy and posting, sharing info, etc. or even been more active and helpful from the get-go. So it's his loss.

Interesting little theory I checked on today: Is Paul Zaichik's "Elastic Steel" forum doing as well as BWC? Why yes it is!

http://www.paulzaichik.com/index.php

If you scroll down to "recent threads" you'll see nothing but spammers. This anecdotal evidence tends to confirm, at least as far as I'm concerned, the theory that the Captain Schettino of BWC is in fact Paul Zaichik. He is captain of at least two ghost ships now that we know of.
